    • Spartacus: (Voice over) I have done this thing because it is just. Blood demands blood. We have lived and lost at the whims of our masters for too long. I would not have it so. I would not see the passing of a brother, for the purpose of sport. I would not see another heart ripped from chest, or breath forfeit for no cause. I know not all of you wish this, yet it is done. It is done. Your lives are your own. Forge your own path, or join with us, and together we shall see Rome tremble!

    • Batiatus: And you, you played your part to fucking perfection.
      : It was not difficult, when passion for vengeance overtakes caution. Even the keenest of minds is easily deceived.
